{daily pic} Capturing Time … ~ Marco Volken

Marco Volken

When I was putting together this week’s {orpheum} gallery, this image really jumped out at me. It’s a goofy picture—a photographer on the sidewalk taking a picture of a clock—but Marco gives it a very serious treatment, starting with the desaturation and the heavy vignetting. I love how he has kept the clock and the upper torso, head, hands, and camera of the photographer in crisp black focus, while greying out and blurring slightly a rather interesting background tableau.

I call it goofy, but it is a great capture to begin with and Marco has done a splendid job of isolating all the elements in a way to suggest we are witnessing one reality superimposed on another. It’s at once quite funny and deadly serious. Well done.
